Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be coming to my pool?

Swimmers are more often than not local families looking for a quiet place to swim.

Private pools also make ideal locations for neurodiverse children and families to come and enjoy a swim.

Do I need insurance?

Yes, you will need to have insurance in place to be able to hire out your pool through Swimple.

Pool Operators Liability Insurance is what you will need, which is a form of Public Liability.

What if a swimmer doesn't show up?

If a swimmer doesn't show up then they will still be charged and you will still be paid.

If a dispute is raised after the missed booking by a swimmer then Swimple will have final decision on whether a refund and cancelation should be awarded.

What happens if a swimmer makes a mess?

If a swimmer leaves your pool area in a mess then please contact the Swimple team.

You can also leave them a bad review.

If there is any major damage then you should contact your insurance provider.

Do I need to provide towels/toys etc?

There is no obligation to offer any towels or toys.  In the current climate with Covid 19 we recommend not offering towels and toys and simply providing the pool space.

Do I need to be there?

It's up to you, but in general, no, you don't need to be there.

You can message swimmers directly with any specific entry requirements they may need, and any additional information so you don't need to be there.

How much should I charge?

Ultimately this is entierly up to you.  We recommend charging between £20 - £40 per hour for your pool.

You can always start lower and then increase your price when you get busier.

How soon can I start renting my pool out?

All listings on Swimple are approved by one of our team before going live.

This can take up to 24 hours.

If any additional information is needed then a member of the Swimple team will be in touch.  Once you have provided the additional information then the listing will be approved.

Do I need to provide toilets/ changing facilities?

The short answer is, no.  There is no obligation for you to provide a toilet or changing facilities.

The more facilities you do offer, however, then the higher rates you can charge and the better feedback you'll likely get.

How much does it cost to list my pool?

Listing your pool is absolutely FREE.

How do I get paid?

Swimple uses Stripe to handle all of it's payment processing.

Payment is taken before the booking and is released to hosts once the booking has been marked complete by the swimmer, or after 7 days (whichever is sooner.)

What if I need to cancel and appointment

Cancelling an appointment is easy. Simply raise a dispute and send a message to the swimmer explaining the situation.

A member of the Swimple will then confirm the cancellation and refund the swimmer.

Do I need a Lifeguard?

For most private pools a lifeguard is not necessary.

If your answer is yes to any of the following, however, then poolside supervision should be provided by a qualified lifeguard:

1. If the pool water is deeper than 1.5M

2, If the pool water area is larger than 170m2

3. If diving is allowed

4. If there is an abrupt change in depth

5. If under 15's are using the pool unaccompanied

6. If food or alcohol is available to pool users

There are no minimum or maximum hours on Swimple.

The longer you offer, the more income you could make.
